I am branching from calligraphy into chinese calligraphy after some lessons and chinese classes. however I wonder what would be a good paper just to practice on, as I am still a beginner. If just printer paper can be used i would use it, but things seems to say no. my teacher practiced on paper towels just fro raw practice but I want to ask the internet :)

Good paper is rice paper (xuan paper)

But as a beginner, you don’t need to use good paper.
You can use bamboo paper (deckle-edged paper).

If you don’t have bamboo paper (deckle-edged paper) at hand, you can even use newspaper…
